Abstract

This article discusses diagnostic features of social phobia, social
skills and (anxious) avoidant personality disorder, and gives an
overview on principles of cognitive behaviour therapy strategies used in
social anxiety patients. Motivation to change and the therapeutic
relationship are important issues to be worked on at the beginning and
throughout therapy. Functional analysis focuses on interactional and
systemic features. Three specific programmes dealing with anxiety
management, social skills training and relaxation techniques are
presented (Gruppentraining sozialer Kompetenzen, Hinsch und Pfingsten
(2007): Soziale Phobien, ein kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutisches
Behandlungsmanual, Stangier et al. (2003) und Soziales
Kompetenztraining, Gruppentherapie bei sozialen Angsten und Defiziten,
Alsleben und Hand (2006)).
